Normally I don't even dream of buying area rugs. I love what an area rug can do for a room but they just aren't easy on the budget. I may have champagne taste on a beer budget when it concerns area rugs! So I've made do with what I have.
Recently I noticed that Rugs USA was having a SUMMER 75% off sale. Hmmm. That brought a couple of the "champagne budget" rugs down to the "beer budget" level. Mighty nice discount, huh!?
I quickly ordered two area rugs that I loved with our Etsy "spending money". (That's money we made selling our projects on Etsy and saved just for something that would otherwise be out of the question.)
Here's the chevron rug in the living room:
I'm working my way around the downstairs with this new cool-toned paint color...taking my own sweet time. It was time for something other than beige. I thought going with something cool would be new and BOLD for us, for a change. I love these blue grey colors. And with the new carpet in here...WOW.
Eventually (when I get around to it) I'll have the paint and trim finished and some artwork and accessories in this room. :) Hopefully in the next couple of weeks.
View into the dining area. Oh, now I want to hurry up and finish painting down here and get some STUFF up on the walls!!!
Check back tomorrow to see the other new area rug.
